Sire: GENTLEWAVE (IRE)
Dam: OUR ETHEL (GB)
Dam Sire: BE MY CHIEF (USA)
An unraced five-year-old mare by Gentlewave is available for sale.
This well-made and attractive individual, who will qualify for British-bred mares' races, was broken in as a four-year-old and has the potential to develop into a high-class NH horse.
She hails from an excellent late-maturing family and boasts future paddock value, in addition to her undoubted racing potential.
The dam Our Ethel has produced the winners of 17 races in total (from six individual winners), with eight of her nine offspring either winning or placing in bumpers on their racecourse debuts.
Her most notable performer thus far is the Passing Glance gelding Attaglance, who memorably landed the Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys' Hurdle at the 2012 Cheltenham Festival, before following up in a Listed Hurdle at the Aintree Grand National meeting the following month.
She is also responsible for the 135-rated Our George, who won a bumper, three hurdles and a chase, and the 133-rated hurdler Mr Monochrome.
Our Ethel, who was herself the winner of a Musselburgh bumper on her racecourse debut, is blessed with an excellent pedigree, being a half-sister to the 14-time winning sprinter (including Listed) Indian Spark and the very useful hurdler Express Gift.
The prospects of this unraced mare are also enhanced significantly by the identity of her sire. Gentlewave is a Grp-1 winning son of the great Monsun, now standing as a NH sire at Yorton Farm Stud having spent much of his earlier career in France.
He is fast developing a reputation as one of the most exciting jumps sires currently in service in Britain, thanks to the recent exploits of 167-rated Easysland, who won the Cross Country Chase at the 2020 Cheltenham Festival, the Kerry National winner Poker Party, and the hugely exciting twice Grade-1 placed novice hurdler Gentlemansgame.
The sire's progeny have sold recently for figures up to €250,000 on the back of such eyecatching results, and it remains a very opportune time to invest in his stock. It is also worth noting that Gentlewave is beginning to impact the broodmare sire division, most notably with the unbeaten Graded-winning French hurdler Paradiso.
Don't miss out on this cracking mare, who has abundant potential in both the racing and breeding departments. Please get in touch for more details.
